Eva Longoria didn’t have any nude photos of her leaked onto the internet from last weekend’s iCloud breach, but she did have an incident of her own.
She claims that an Apple employee from San Antonio emailed her personally, retrieving her information from private records.
“I’ve had a lot of problems of people breaking into my email,” Eva Longoria said during an interview with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover for Access Hollywood Live.
“Wait, what were they sending you? Like, ‘Hi Eva, my name is John?'” Hoover asked.
“Yeah. ‘I made a dress I want to send it to you, I work at the Apple Store here in San Antonio’ and I’m like… what? Did someone give out my email? Or my phone! ‘I saw your phone number from your profile, I just wanted to call and say hi I’m a fan.’ …There are a lot of privacy issues,” Eva Longoria said.
As scary as this is, privacy seems to be a huge problem for Apple right now. One that could get bigger if not attended to. So, has the nude celebrity photo scandal and Eva Longoria’s incident spurred Apple to do more to prevent this from happening again?
So far, it seems so.
Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, admitted that they could have done more to inform clients of the risk of security breach. He now says they are doing more.
Cook announced a series of new features that will be implemented to strengthen user security. He said Apple will alert users via email and push notifications when someone tries to change an account password, restore iCloud data to a new device, or when a device logs into an account for the first time.
Hopefully, the nude celebrity photo scandal and Eva Longoria’s security breach have had enough impact to spur more improvements so that no one else’s naked pics on iCloud will end up all over the web.
